The Wyoming Mediation Program coordinator for the Wyoming Department of Agriculture has been recognized for her efforts to improve the quality of life across the state.
Lucy Pauley has received the 2011 Friend of Community Development Award for contributions to Wyoming through her involvement in conflict mediation, said Cole Ehmke, who presented the award, with the University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service.
Ehmke said Pauley was commended for her willingness to teach, facilitate and expand individuals' knowledge on mediation, her contributions of time and resources and her skill in covering the topic at events across the state.
"The approach Lucy takes to conflict management goes far beyond the topic itself," said Ehmke, an agriculture entrepreneurship and personal financial management specialist in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics. "She genuinely understands and promotes the role of effective conflict resolution in the broader community context. Lucy truly understands, believes and expresses the critical role conflict management resolution plays in overall community well-being. Her approach to it brings awareness to the impact it has on all facets of community life."
The award is from the Wyoming Association of Community Development Extension Professionals, a group of UW Extension educators who help people develop leadership and skills to improve communities.
